Blondulla is very imaginative and is known to "spice" up stories a bit, making some parts untrue.

After her trip to Hawaii, she was going to tell her mom what happened, but she really didn't do many exciting things. So, Blondulla, being the imaginative thinker she is, came up with a scenario.

"Mom, it was so exciting! I got to see one of the volcanoes erupt, it was amazing! The lava shot a few stories into the air, I've never seen anything like it! Oh, and I was watching a river of lava too! I was only seven feet away from it!".

After her mom heard this story, she knew that a part of it wasn't true. Which part wasn't true and why?


Lava is known to spout a couple dozen stories into the sky, it wasn't that.

I kinda thought 7 feet was pretty dang close to be standing and watching lava shoot in the air and living to tell about it.

mr.brainiac, she wasn't watching the lava shoot up, she was watching the river. (well, she wasn't watching the river, thats what she lied about.)
